Juve-Barca deal denied, but...

Juventus’ shock swap deal with Barcelona has been denied by one reliable source, but they confirm talks are ongoing between the two clubs.

Sport reported earlier this afternoon that Juve had agreed to give Barca €25m plus Miralem Pjanic and Mattia De Sciglio for right-back Nelson Semedo.

According to’s Bianconeri correspondent Romeo Agresti, no such deal has been agreed ‘to date’.

However, Agresti did admit the two sides were ‘in contact, trying to study some operations’.

Sport’s report claims the Catalans value Semedo at €50m, which would mean Juve priced Pjanic and De Sciglio at a combined €25m.

The alleged deal is made more surprising by the non-inclusion of Arthur as a direct replacement for the Bosnian.
